Thanks for your clarifications.

So sometime in March or April?
I couldn't find a release plan...

Interesting. I found using Python on windows difficult because there is 
not yet any package manager which can install all needed FOSS packaged 
like apt/rpm/fink.
As you know from my previous postings, I had difficulties to prepare 
windows binaries. I have to use Windows at work... Therefore, you 
affiliation with this OS would be of use here.

Yes, it is. I was able to build the version from the sandbox svn just with
checkinstall python ./setup.py install

When we are ready for binary releases I might even try to prepare a 
official Ubuntu package.
